Studies have shown that echinacea has antioxidant potential and may reduce oxidative damage associated with the immune response. Echinacea EFLA® 894 specifically has displayed both immunostimulatory and immunomodulatory effects. In animals under stress, Echinacea EFLA® 894 helped restore immune balance, attenuating the adverse effects of stress on immune function. Cellular and human studies also suggest Echinacea EFLA® 894 improves immune defenses, supporting normal, healthy lymphocyte levels and the innate immune response. Ivy is a traditional remedy for bronchial irritation and congestion and has been shown to have anti-spasmodic and mucolytic effects.* Ivy also supports the health of the alveoli, improving surfactant secretion which supports normal, healthy gas exchange.
